This gorgeous Montana sapphire is beautiful medium blue-green color that I call peacock blue; the color is reminiscent of the color of blue-green of a peacock’s feathers. There is a slight amount of natural rutile silk that can flash a gold color at just the right angle; its proof positive of the natural unheated state of the gem. The gem is otherwise very clean and quite bright and flashy in the hand.
I faceted this sapphire in my custom “Testudo” oval brilliant design that I’ve designed and optimized for sapphire; the result is a glittering beauty of a gemstone. The gem weighs 1.76 carats and measures 7.5 x 5.7 x 5.0 mm; the perfect size for an engagement ring.
